TransforMed rolls out new product to support solo, small practices
TransforMed, a wholly owned subsidiary of the AAFP, has launched a new service that offers small primary care practices the help they need to implement the patient-centered medical home, or PCMH, model of care.
According to a May 25 news release, TransforMed’s Small Practice Package program “bundles together the necessary tools and components and streamlines the process to enable practices with four or fewer physicians to implement the components of the TransforMed PCMH model in two years.”
Elements of the new program that are available to each participating practice include:
- a medical home assessment to help identify practice expectations, define processes, and understand objectives;
- a gap analysis to a evaluate a practice’s current situation and PCMH opportunities;
- a comprehensive transformation plan that will prioritize goals and set timelines; and
- a dedicated TransforMed facilitator.
The package is available to practices for $1,250 per quarter for virtual online support or $2,500 per quarter for practices that choose TransforMed’s on-site option. Practices must commit to a two-year program enrollment.
Both the virtual and on-site options include unlimited access to Delta-Exchange, TransforMed’s online learning community, and enrollment in the TransforMed Institute, a soon-to-be launched educational forum.
